Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Silves, Portugal your home away from home

Silves, the ancient capital of the Algarve, has evidence of settlements on the land reaching back to 1,000BC, and the old town is awash with fascinating sites from throughout the ages! Surrounded by rich colours of orange orchards and almond groves, the town of Silves is a sleepy town surrounded by the rolling foothills of the Monchique Mountains, perfect for an exploration and investigation of the Algarve.

Things to do on holiday in Silves, Portugal

Although many of the town’s most important historical remains were destroyed during the 1755 earthquake, the impressive sandstone Silves Castle remained strong, due to the huge Moorish walls which support it. Silves Castle is the largest castle in the Algarve, and is certainly among the most beautiful. The Museu Arqueologico has managed to collate and display various artefacts from throughout the town’s history, and pieced them together for visitors to get a clearer understanding of Silves’ history and influence. The Roman Ponte Romana and 13th Century Cathedral also make for interesting viewing if you have the time whilst staying in a Silves property.

Despite a huge amount being made out of Silves’ ancient heritage, there is much more to taking accommodation in Silves than touring historical sites. A Silves property or villa in Silves’ outskirts is the perfect base for golfing holidays to the Algarve or for exploration of the Algarve. Centrally located, accommodation in Silves can be used for holidays in the beach, in the Sierra de Monichique or exploring the large Algarve towns of Loule, Portimao, Albufeira or Lagoa. The famous Algarve beaches of Carvoeiro are just a 15 minute drive from self catering accommodation in Silves, with all their attractions and sports facilities.

The golf courses of Vale de Milho, Quinta do Gramacho and Vale da Pinta can all be reached very easily from a Silves villa too. There are public courses dotted across the countryside, so finding a round from Silves accommodation will not prove difficult.

Places to holiday in Silves, Portugal

Lagoa is only 8km from accommodation in Silves, and is one of the most picturesque towns you will be able to find in Portugal. Located at the summit of one of the coastal hills, Lagoa is also a magnificent base for golf and sightseeing, and the golden beaches of Ferragudo and Carvoeiro are just miles away.

Weather in Silves, Portugal

Summers in Silves are very warm, and Silves villas with pools are hugely sought after during June, July and August. Temperatures from October until April are cooler, but remain blissfully warm, with monthly averages staying between 15 and 22˚C, perfect for walking, golfing or cycling throughout the area.

Flights to Silves, Portugal

Located just 30 minutes from Faro Airport (FAO), a holiday villa in Silves is very easily reached. Faro receives multiple daily flights from across the UK, provided by a range of luxury or ‘no frills’ airlines. When you arrive in Faro, it is probably a good idea to take a hire car, not only to reach your accommodation in Silves, but also so that you can easily reach the beaches or attractions in the Silves area without having to rely on public transport, meaning you can get the most from the flexibility and space provided by taking a private Silves property for your holiday.

Truly lovely detached villa in large grounds with all the things you need for an enjoyable holiday.

5 of 5
From start to finish this was a holiday not to forget, made amazing by the property owners Peter and Linda. If you are lucky enough to get to experience their hospitality and villa this summer you will not be disappointed. We would definitely go back- only for longer next time!

The photos don't do it justice!

We had a wonderful, relaxing week at Casa do Campo. The house is a few minutes from the town of Silves, a quiet valley village, and about 20 mins from the nearest (and stunning) beach. It's a perfect home base for exploring the Algarve and after checking out the entire region and it's vast differences, we were so glad that we were staying in Silves. It is "away from it all" and yet so close. But, more importantly for us, a family of four, the house was incredibly comfortable. It's well-equipped and the recent restoration to the house is gorgeous. There is a lovely outdoor living area as well, though it was too cold in February to eat outdoors. You can see how many considered choices were made in the design and decor-- Nelson and Lena did a fabulous job and the photos on the listing do not do this home justice!!! The pool is small but I imagine the perfect place to cool off when it's hot in the summer. The gardens are so lovely and our kids absolutely loved checking for eggs in the chicken coop every day. We were also welcomed to pick vegetables and fruit (the best fresh squeezed orange juice ever) from the garden. Surrounding the house are vineyards and more orange groves. We saw one neighbor the entire week (their is plenty of space between neighboring houses). It was such a quiet, restful and relaxing week! I will absolutely miss sitting in the hammock each morning enjoying the morning sun, soaking in the view of the rolling valley and vineyards. Nelson met us on the first day and left a lovely welcome gift of cheese, bread, wine. And, of course, fresh eggs from the chickens! Nelson checked on us once more during the week and is such a gentle and kind host. Sonia, their daughter, was available quickly via email every step of the way and was so generous with her kindness as well. They offer several suggestions of what to do and where to eat and we can confirm that the simple chicken restaurant next to the veg market in Silves is delicious. If you're looking to be away from the tourist scene and have a more authentic Algarve experience, this home is a wonderful choice. I would absolutely stay here again and have already recommended this home to friends.
